Greetings to my fellow citizens of the United States,

I am running for president with all of your desires in mind, intending to defend the rights of the masses and secure future generations. I swore to acquire Oregon, California, and Texas to begin the process of balancing our country's free and slave states. In addition, I intend to pursue a favorable settlement for the Texans. It will eventually put an end to their border issues. Among my core platforms are the reduction of tariffs, the establishment of a new federal financial system, and the strengthening of the executive office.
